Frozen Shoulder Treatment

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, manifests as shoulder stiffness, pain, and restricted movement due to the stiffening and scarring of tissues around the joint. It can result from injuries, overuse, or underlying conditions like diabetes or stroke. The gradual onset and resolution over a year or more characterize this condition. Chiropractic care is highly effective in treating frozen shoulder by addressing both the affected shoulder joint and the vertebral column. Diagnosis involves physical examination and, if needed, X-rays to rule out other conditions. Chiropractic treatment, complemented by specific home exercises, aims to restore full shoulder movement and prevent relapse. Early intervention is optimal, but even in chronic cases, chiropractic care proves effective in reducing pain and improving shoulder mobility.
